Report: Raiders to release DT Jerry Tillery

The Las Vegas Raiders will release defensive tackle Jerry Tillery with the start of the new league year on Wednesday, ESPN reported Saturday.

Tillery was the No. 28 overall pick of the Los Angeles Chargers in 2019 and waived by the team and then-general manager Tom Telesco on Nov. 10, 2022. The Raiders claimed him off waivers days later and signed him to a two-year, $6.8 million contract in March 2023.

Telesco is now in charge with the Raiders, hired as general manager in January.

Tillery, 27, was due a $1.5 million roster bonus next week, and his 2024 salary would have guaranteed. The Raiders will take a dead cap hit of $375,000.

In 25 games (10 starts) with the Raiders, Tillery recorded 31 tackles, two quarterback hits and two sacks with one fumble recovery.

He has played in 79 career games (39 starts) with 147 tackles, 14 quarterback hits, 12.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
